Greater China

This IWA region includes: People's Republic of China, Hong Kong SAR, Macao SAR, and Chinese Taiwan.

The activities of the IWA in Greater China have grown significantly over the last few years. This is a reason the IWA has decided to set up a separate IWA office in Beijing. This office also caters to the other Chinese speaking territories: Hong Kong SAR, Macao SAR, and  Chinese Taiwan.
The advancement of the IWA in the Chinese speaking territories is clearly shown by the growing number of IWA congresses and conferences organised in the region. The scope and audience for  these events varies very much with the topic on hand. For an overview of all IWA’s events worldwide, click here
The IWA also has some of its most prestigious and productive academic members located in China. These ‘University Members’ benefit from teaming up with the IWA in a variety of ways.
By having their academic publications diffused globally through the most reputable academic books and magazines in the field of water for example.  Or by offering appointed staff, PhD students and researchers the chance to meet and work with other IWA members, in (online) specialist groups, congresses, co-publications and more.
